296 232. THE HISTORY OF YACAMA NAYAKA. [Verses composed by Pasumarti Kodandapati at the instance of Kumara Yacama, son of Yacama Nayaeju.] When Davala Papa heard of the high-handed action (of Yaca) in seizing the fort of Uttaramallur, he marched against him at the head of an army of 40,000 foot, some horses and elephants, accompanied by Damera Kari Cenna and his forces. Yaca excited the admiration of Vira Venkataraya by offering them battle with an army of only 300 kaijUam and 4,000 other troops in which he killed Papa and took Cenna prisoner (1). Is it possible to estimate the greatness of Yaca? He performed the coronation of Kamadevaraya. Having shone by the support of his relations and friends, he quickly defeated Makaraju and killed Jagga of Cengadu; he captured all the lands and forts administered by the members of the Grobburi family; vanquished the army of Krsnappa of Oenji in battle and took him prisoner; he put Etiraja to flight near Palemkota, and slew several other enemies. Yaca made the country extending between the K.£§na and the Kaveri to the east of Velur, the land of the Velamas (2), Being served by the army of the karyakartas of Ramaraya and Raghunatha Nayaka; the entire retinue of his brothers Singa, Eayapa, and Ayyapa Nayaka; the troops of his relations like Damera Kari Cenna and Ceruku Vengala; and the forces . of friends like the faithful Ketireddi, Raghunatha and Pavada Kysna, Yacama slew Grobburi Jagga in a battle at Kokkarasupeta and put to flight the kings of Madura and Cenji and other noblemen.
